? >> code section? >> 1060 (r ) >> it doves "limited live performance locale," and there are five criteria. i guess first of all, when you look at history of why an llp was created, it was a permit that was designed for restaurants and cafes, so that they could easily apply for an entertainment permit that didn't require them to go through the long process of being underwritten and providing security plans and those sorts of things. so when you look at the 518 valencia space, our concern is that we really don't understand what the space is. we have had a whole litany of different requests coming out of the space via the different third parties that have rented the space. one was a record-release party/beer kegger. last week they had a critical mass event, but i'm not really comfortable with this venue space being issued an llp, because we're not comfortable with the lack of security plan and first and foremost, it just does not meet the definition, if you read the definition of what an "llp is," namely patrons or members are admited to a locale, which there is food or beverages for consum
